Dropdown shows no xmltv grabbers...

Added by Micael Beronius over 10 years ago

I'm trying to config my tvheadend to use my grabber (I only have one, tv_grab_swedb). The grabber itself seams to work just fine, and "tv_find_grabbers" finds my grabber just fine.

However.

When I press the dropdown dialog in tvheadend, it spins for about a second, and then returns an empty list.
It is not possible to manually enter any information into the empty list.

tvheadend is looking for grabbers at the following location:

("/bin");
("/usr/bin");
("/usr/local/bin");
("/usr/bin/perlbin/vendor");

(taken from / src / xmltv.c)

and you need to make sure that the user that is running tvheadend can execute the grabbers at one of those locations.

Hope that helps to pin-point the issue.

Thanks!

I am somewhat confused at the moment, as it seams I get the listings through xmltv, even without having my grabber specified. Maybe tvheadend automatically uses it, if there's only one around.
I haven't even connected the xmltv tags with my channel names (They are very similar, so I guess tvheadend is just good guessing).

I think Micael you must be getting information from EIT.

I am also not getting any xmltv grabbers listed, if I login as hts, I can execute for example /usr/bin/tv_grab_uk_rt, configure it, and I see the .xmltv folder created under /home/hts with the correct permissions. Whenever I click on the xml-tv source drop down, the spinner is shown for a period of time then disappears and nothing is shown. I've had a look at the code and can't see anything particularly wrong.. other than no tracing, or logging of failures.

Is there a way of manually configuring this without relying on the scanner picking up the location of the grabber?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Thought I would report back, looks like it was a permission issue, not entirely sure what I permission I changed that caused it to work, but I added the hts user into a few groups such as video etc, restarted the tvheadend svc, refresh the web ui and I now have the grabbers listed.
